A Glance

angry-eyesSuch strong words
A hazarded glance
Rife with meaning
Denigration implied
An easy mark
Tilted off-center
Straightened for show
Like binding ties
In a fitful dance
Perfect expectation
Of lost days
Spent in shadow
Where we stumble
Where we fall
In jilted lines
That spread wide
Then collapse
In misunderstanding
That loving hate
Like liquid fire
Shut up in my bones
Until it explodes
When I look away.
